I contributed to an article featured at LiveScience.com!
I’m excited about it since it is a product from my internship and the people I work with were encouraging, and the editor from LiveScience sounds pleased in his correspondence emails.
Normally I consider myself a natural historian. I love the natural sciences in general and a few select social sciences and humanities (just so that I can include journalism, history, human geography, sociocultural anthropology and nature-y fine art–that’s it!) but in the few weeks at my internship I have written news releases about biomedical engineering and photovoltaic cells (solar power) that makes me appreciate the “gray” or industrialized applied sciences. Maybe soon I won’t stereotype engineering as anything to do with gray metals.
Here’s the link to the article:
On a side note, I will be contributing to my university’s research blog every Friday at Research Frontiers. I wrote the first one as a general introduction, as I am the only intern among several professional (and full-time) science communicators. If you’re curious and not irked by excitable, somewhat shameless self-promotion, my first post is here.
